Train Visit Work Queues
As you stage cargo for an outbound train visit, Octopi will create a work queue. While planning the train visit, you can add staged cargo to their planned positions on rail cars.
Each planned cargo item will automatically be added to the new work queue, listing the Source in the Yard and the Outbound Train Visit number as the Destination.

A new Bookings CSV template specifically for General Cargo bookings is now available.
Visit the Uploading bookings from a .csv file guide to download the new template. The guide provides a link to download the template for Container bookings and a separate link to download the template for General Cargo bookings.
